Achinoam Nini , Noa, Web Page Biography, Discography, Reviews, Sound, Online Ordering

Nini is a singer who tries to enjoy both the worlds of popular and classical music. But as Nini (or Noa, as she is known outside Israel) puts it, "there is an intrinsic connection between the music of Gil [Dor, her ongoing musical partner] and myself in our pop activities and classical music. We didn't have to bend our songs. It is a most natural extension."

Is this extension indeed that natural? Does it make sense to hear Nini sing with a full symphony orchestra? Does it makes sense for her to perform this way? As a matter of fact, nothing could be more natural. And those who attended the special Sasha Argov concert organized by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra several years ago, have already seen that Nini can be at her most natural with a full symphony orchestra backing her up.

Now (2002)
the album 'now' was written "under the influence" of my pregnancy and birth, and during the first year of ayehli's life. It is a journey that has transported me from wherever it was i used to be (that place is fading fast...) to where i am now: a small island of hope in a vast sea of uncertainty.
...Achinoam Nini

    Calling(gef24965)

    Noa heard her calling early. "At 18, I got this mortality thing," she says, reflecting on her years in the army, "this perspective on how short life is, how there is absolutely no time to waste. You better do what you love in life because if you don't, that's it -- you don't get a second chance. I love performing. It is my greatest strength." Noa is not shy about expressing her passion for this calling, or for Calling her second album on Geffen Records.

    Noa (1993gef24619)

    Dor had introduced the project to his friend and former instructor at Boston's Berklee School of Music, jazz guitarist Pat Metheny. Metheny brought Noa and Dor to Geffen and, with bassist Steve Rodby, co-produced their first English-language release (it includes three Hebrew songs). Noa, also released in 1993, bears the sonic stamp of Metheny's sidemen; acoustic bass, guitar and piano combine to produce a mellow, rolling pop soundscape dotted with classical and folk textures.

    Noa and Dor then set off to play the world. Noa quickly went gold in Israel, a pleasant surprise as Israelis often give a chilly reception to foreign-language records from homegrown artists. The true shocker, though, was Japan, where the record immediately sold 17,000 copies.
